5 p.m. on the east coast, 2 p.m. on the west coast f you are just tuning in, thank you for joining us. the gun control debate, it takes center stage on tuesday. that's when vice president biden's expected to present his recommendations to president obama on how to reduce gun violence in this country. a ban on assault weapons likely to be among those proposal. new york senator charles schumer today asked walmart and other retailers to stop selling those guns voluntarily.
2:02pm
>> hard to believe that walmart, the nation's largest retailer is being so irresponsible and i would hope people wouldn't go to walmart if they insist on this attitude. >> the national rifle association president, david keene, said washington is to blame for the buying frenzy at gun shows. americans are afraid that president obama will chip away at the second amendment. you will hear more of what the nra president had to say today on cnn's "state of the union" with candy crowley. and that will be coming up. tomorrow marks one month since the school massacre in newtown, connecticut a town hall has been scheduled for tomorrow and resident he is today are meeting to discuss what to do with the sandy hook elementary school which now stands vacant. cnn national correspondent, susan candiotti is in newtown. susan is there any consensus among the people who are speaking about what to do? >> reporter: oh, marty, i think at this stage, people would be surprised if there would be a consensus. i mean, it's so early and so
2:03pm
fresh in everyone's mind. after all, 27 people were killed during that terrible mass shooting, including -- including several children ages 6 and 7. and at this meeting, we heard a range of opinions about what should happen. this lasted an hour and a half. i was struck by the number of sandy hook parents who were here. one of them said this was such a horrible thing that happened that they should just tear down the school and instead put a memorial there. some saying the children are too frightened to go back. another parent countered that children should be strong and not hide from adversity and that they should be helped through this, that a school should be rebuilt on that site but perhaps also a memorial as well. but another parent saying, you know, we have to be sensitive to all different ideas. in the end, many of the parents said it ought to be the sandy hook parents whose children
2:04pm
still go there, that they should be able to get together and let them weigh in first before a final decision is made. again this is the first, marty, of a number of different public forums that will be held to talk about this. marty? >> such a painful debate. in the meantime, i'm wondering if people are also weighing in on this debate over gun control. >> we didn't hear i have no that today other than to broadly say that security has to be an issue at schools. however, tomorrow, there will be a news conference sponsored by an advocacy group here in sandy hook that came together after this tragedy and they will be talking about different ideas to talk about for example, gun control or improving security at schools, to improve mental health care in this country. so, an official conversation on many different subjects is now under way in this town as it continues to try to heal.
2:05pm
marty? >> susan candiotti, thanks very much. new york's governor, andrew cuomo, declared a public health emergency in his state over the flu. the cdc has released new numbers showing that the high numbers are declining in some states. now, it's still a dangerous situation with widespread activity reported in 47 states. the cdc's latest count shows 20 children have died across the country as a result of the flu. overseas there's been another shocking incident of gang rape in india. the latest happened this weekend in the northern state of punjab. police have arrested six suspects much the manhunt is on for a seventh. the 29-year-old woman was taken to an undisclosed address after she got on a bus and raped all night long. the attack eerily similar to an assault last month where a group of them gang raped a woman and brutally beat her after she boarded the bus. she later died and that attack sparked protest and international outrage.
2:06pm
in egypt, former president hosni mubarak will get a new trial. his lawyer believes the retrial could take place within two months. mubarak's currently serving a life sentence for ordering the killing of peaceful protesters during the egyptian uprising. the 84-year-old was deposed after 30 years in power. the u.s. is experiencing strange weather. temperatures in california and arizona have temperatures 30 below normal but parts of the east coast, folks are walking around in shorts. the spring-like weather, though, is sadly not expected to last long. weather forecasters say by the middle of next week it will be cold again. it is january. less than three hours from now, stars will start strolling down that red carpet for the much-anticipated golden globes. cnn entertainment correspondent nischelle turner joins us now from beverly hills and nischelle, what's happening
2:07pm
there? >> reporter: well, martin, you know when i talked to you just about an hour ago, the red carpet was pretty bare. now it is starting to fill up with the likes of the industry types, people like us, the journalists, the hosts, people that will be interviewing all of the celebrities. i'm going to do the lady-like thing and step down and show you a little bit where we are on the red carpet, i'm kind of connected to everything. we are here at almost the end of the red carpet of the golden globes. now, this is a massive red carpet here and i can't even begin to show you where it starts because it goes all the way around the corner here and all the way to the front where the picture takers come and then here at the end is cnn and the celebrity thirst toast there at the moet station and head on into the awards ceremony. now, who do like to partake in the bubbly here at the 70th annual golden globes. they -- all of hollywood says this is the party, this is the awards ceremony where they come, get to let their hair down a little bit, see all the people

2:09pm
>> get your tux on and get out here. come on. >> i will see what you can do i will have to charter the con chord i think to make it in time, but thanks. if you need more golden globes, how about the parties, the fashions and of course, the beautiful people? i will be getting the inside story from a senior editor at s "us weekly." no lone gunman in the jfk asocial nation. we have heard that before. but now, the confirmation his brother thought that ahead. ship's captain of the "costa concordia" says he was not responsible for the wreck. blan ence. 30 shrimp for $11.99. i can't imagine anything better. you're getting a ton of shrimp, and it tastes really good!

is the big celebration what happens once every four years. yes, we are talking about the inauguration of the president. all the bands, the drill teams and the stand-ins are at the capitol today, rehearsing for next week's second inauguration of barack obama and vice president joe biden. and athena jones now joins us live from washington. and athena, it seems they really wanted to make it look like the real thing, especially when you look at the stand-ins and detail they went to. >> it was a full dress rehearsal done in realtime, you saw the fife and drum band playing, the marine band, members of the military matching in formation and those stand-ins you mentioned for president obama and the first lady, for vice president biden and even two young girls there to stand in for sasha and malia. folks are saying that the people standing in for the first couple actually resemble the first
2:13pm
couple. we'd chance to speak with them and the woman who is standing in for the first lady said she tried harness a little bit of michelle obama's style so i think they had some fun with it today, martin. >> i'm sure they did. let's talk about crowds, the first time of the inauguration was historic, it is still historic, i'm wondering, will the crowds be the same? >> we asked the chamber of commerce about that, what expectations r let's listen to what the president of the chamber of commerce told us. >> what we are hearing is 600,000 to 800,000 people coming into the city. you compare that to 2008/2009, 2008 election/2009 inauguration, it was almost 2 million. 1.8. those of us in the in business community would love to see 2 million people in our city, but no, we are not looking anywhere near those numbers. >> reporter: so you heard not as many people this time but still, hundreds of thousands of people
2:14pm
expected to descend on the mall. you don't need tickets to descend on the mall. you do to have be in the seats behind us it will be a boone to businesses. one thing the chamber of commerce president told us there is hotel space you as long as you are willing to spend a good chunk of change, $600 a night. >> if you have the money, there's always room. we know if the president or any other officials are actually part of the run-through or will be part of a run-through? >> reporter: no not part of the run-through, just the stand-s in, the official swearing in is taking place next sunday i january 20th, its constitutionally mandated day that the president must be sworn in, but the big public ceremony will be on monday and we are certainly hoping that the weather is nice and warm, at least warmer than last time around when it was freezing. right now, expecting it to be high 40s, partly cloudy. martin? >> i should ask, any special guests anticipated? >> reporter: there are special guests. beyonce is slated to sing the national anthem.
2:15pm
kelly clarkson is going to perform "my country 'tis of thee." james taylor plans to perform "america the beautiful," big music stars will be taking part on that monday. martin? >> a great time. athena, thank you very much. the gun control debate who will be our next secretary of defense and whether your taxes are going to go up. in case you missed them, they were some of the topics on the sunday political talk shows. to save you some time, we brought together the bright points. take a look. >> do you think you have enough support on alcohol kohl keep an assault weapons ban from passing?
2:16pm
>> if he is willing to expend the political capital, you don't want to make predictions, and yo you don't want to bet your house on the outcome, but i would say that the likelihood is that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this congress. >> this is not your father's nra, but it represents gun manufacturers and less than half of the funding comes from their member, and they make tens of millions of dollars off of the purchases of guns. >> just his overall temperament and is he suited to run a department or big agency or big entity like the pentagon? >> you have questions about his temperament? >> i think -- i think -- i think there are numbers of staffers who are coming forth now just talking about the way he has dealt with them. i have certainly questions about a lot of things. >> one of the things interesting about this issue of temperament, i know there's a close relationship between the president and chuck hagel. i have traveled with him. i understand it but i also understand that chuck has the wherewithal and the ability to speak truth to power. >> what is his view of america's
2:17pm
role in the world? whether he really believes that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, that clearly is not -- that's not correct. i mean, that's -- in fact, it's bizarre. >> hey, guys, how are you? how are you doing, man? how are you doing? good to see you. >> i challenge to you say on what basis are you still a republican? do you feel like this republican party has left you or have you left it? >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i'm still a republican. but in recent years, there's been a significant shift to the right and we have seen what that shift has produced, two losing presidential campaigns. i think what the republican party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country is changed. there's also a dark -- a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. what i do mean by that? what i mean by that that they
2:18pm

2:21pm
talk about some serious pocket change. the treasury department now says it won't be minting a $1 trillion coin to avert a federal government default. the coin would have been deposited into the federal reserve but never been in circulation. the federal government has already reached that debt ceiling, by the way, of nearly $16.4 interest. and did we really open our wallets over the holidays? this week, we will get a pretty good look at just how much retailers rake in. senior partner and managing director of the boston consulting group and author of the u.s. manufacturing renaissance and he joins me from chicago. welcome, hal. let's talk about retail sales. >> good to be with you. >> and also talk about housing start numbers for december. what do you think this is going to tell us about where our economy is and where we are going? >> the economy had a rocky period, especially because of the last fiscal cliff.
2:22pm
we were concerned that companies and consume verse stopped spending. what we will find out this month is whether that is true or not. most important is retail sales. retail sales and the consumer account for about 60% of all of our economy. except the consumers are spending the economy tends to do well. in the month of november, before the fiscal cliff, retail sales grew by about .3%. not a bad number what we are seeing from some of the economists that provide consensus forecasts is the number about .4%. that .4% would be a very good sign if the economy hits that number so we all should you can hopeful that it does. we are also looking at other things like housing starts. as we all new york the housing market has been down for a long period of time it is starting to rebound and it is a very, very important part of our economy. we saw housing starts in november 861,000 and the forecast shows 876,000 that would be about a 1.7% increase, which would also be a very good sign for the economy f we can
2:23pm
hit the .4 on the retail sales and the 876,000 or higher on the housing start that would be great sign for the economy, meaning the fiscal cliff didn't ther the economy that much at all. >> certainly keep our fingers crossed on that we are also, i think, getting some news about inflation this week. and it's perking up a bit. what's driving it? >> what we have seen in inflation has been rises for many factors but there's one thing that is taking place that i think all the consumers are happy about, we are watching energy prices decline and that decline in energy prices has caused the producer price index, that's what the companies basically spend, to drop by .08% in november. what we are looking for, from a consensus forecast, a little dr. minor drop of another .1%. so, a rather big change. and from a consumer perspective, we saw the consumer price index drop from .3%, negative 3%, .3%,
2:24pm
and we expect basically flat inflation for the month of december. so, you know, again if those numbers hold, we will have very low inflation and increases in housing starts and retail sales and that's big plus for the economy. if it doesn't, we will be in a little bit of trouble. >> yeah. let me ask you about the flu. it's been a story, of course that people worry about physically, but what's the economic story? it does cost us potentially billions of dollars could it actually make a measurable dent, say in the economic growth? >> yes. the flu is a real issue. and this year, we have a particularly bad flu season and we are seeing a lot of workers not showing up to work and we see people not buying things because, of course, they are homesick. you know, some of the forecasts i've seen that this could be a .5% impact to the economy, which is fairly significant, something in the order of $10 billion or more, and a loss of productivity for the economy, all big factors. this is something that does make
2:25pm
a difference and i would urge everybody to do things like get a flu shot and wash their hands and if you're sick, stay at home for the benefit not just for you but for our economy. >> that's right. do something good for the economy. get a flu shot. all right. ha hal chicken, we appreciate speaking with you. there was no lone gunman. we have heard that claim before about the assassination of jfk. for the first time, confirmation what his brother, bobby, thought so too. that story ahead. millions of women made this book their guilty pleasure, now 50 shades of grey is a musical. i'm not kidding you. and go inside the golden globes. talking the stars, the parties and, of course, the gowns.

for those of you just joining us, welcome. thank you very much for being with us. i'm martin savidge in for fredricka whitfield and here with the stories we are following now from the cnn newsroom. vice president biden's gun task force makes its recommendations to the white house on tuesday, commissioned in the aftermath of the newtown shootings. expected among the proposals, universal background checks, restrictions on ammunition magazines and a ban on assault weapons. newtown, connecticut, tomorrow, by the way, marks one
2:29pm
month since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at the sandy hook elementary school a town hall meeting has been scheduled. today, residents met to discuss what too do with the now-vacant school. proposals range from tearing it down to turning it into a planetarium. and some scary homes for people in a movie theater in northern san diego. police officers stormed that theater yesterday and shot a man who apparently pulled a hand gun on them. the 20-year-old may have ran into the theater after he got into a fight with his girlfriend and people on the street saw him with a gun. no one else was hurt in the shooting. the suspect is in critical condition. now checking stories that are trending on the internet at this hour. the golden globes are tonight. we will have a live report on not just what to expect at the ceremony itself but a sneak peek on which parties actors are headed to after the event. that's just minutes away. meanwhile, tim tebow's brother got so excited after the ravens tweeted the broncos, he
2:30pm
couldn't resist tweeting it out. since he lives in colorado, seems not everybody shared his happiness that night. from two shades of tebow to "fifty shades of grey," if you like it, might enjoy watching the musical. don't expect it to be anything like the book. our felicia taylor looks at what the stage version could be like. >> reporter: racy, raunchy, risque? some might call it soft porn. it's the book that made women squeal with pleasure. ♪ want to open my eyes and see all 50 shades ♪ >> reporter: now on stage, others are belting out a different kind of tune in its honor. ♪ open your book open your mind ♪ >> the spoof is a titillating spectacle with plenty of sensuality. the stage version parodies eat rottic best seller by centering around a middle aged ladies book club obsessed with the more
2:31pm
colorful parts which become the butt of jokes through a series of sketches. here we are with the cast of "50 shades" at their dress rehearsal to get a first look at the scenes before they actually hit the great white way. >> a couple of friends of mine actually came to me with the idea. initially, i said what a terrible yudt. i can't make that funny, a very serious thing, about sex. but i was convinced and we started writing these songs and they were really, really funny. ♪ >> reporter: this musical production is as erotic and decadent as you would expect. the collaboration of comedy writers creating an ultraspicy script. all capitalizing on the frenzy caused by this dirty sensation. ♪ how much can i handle >> reporter: and if you have an
2:32pm
image in mind of ana and christian, you just might be surprised. >> i think this is the role i was born to play. i read in the book he has dark hair. like i'm perfect for this. >> reporter: now this kinky musical is taking its show on the road, traveling to many different cities across the united states and it's all because of this book, "50 shades of grey," half a billion in sales, having sold 65 million copies worldwide. hollywood is also trying to cash in on the frenzy. but for now, fans can get their fill of ana and christian on stage. felicia taylor, cnn, new york. what happens after the golden globes is usually the real talker and when the stars hit the many parties that are happening around town. bradley jacobs who is the senior editor with "us weekly" knows about that parties, by the way,
2:33pm
wearing his own shades of grey there. what are the stars doing right about now, bradley? >> right about now? let's see. well, their glam squads are putting their final touches on their nails and hair and little things in their hair and all that. they are checking their hem lines. they are making sure, of course, that the girls are secure, because nobody wants to be the next tara reid. hopefully having something to eat, long days, their day is just beginning. get to the red carpet and pushed and pull and photographed hundreds of times by dozens of different photographers. a very long day, a whole awards ceremony to sit through and all the parties to go through. hopefully a big breakfast, slept a good night's rest and they are ready for the marathon ahead.
2:34pm
>> how competitive are the designers when it comes to direction the stars, getting them to look as good as they do? >> the dresses are big business. we ran a story in "us weekly" this year because halle berry you was upset with her stylist, shared a stylist with sandra bullock. the stylist according to hally, our source, was spending too much time on sandra. you know, we interviewed amanda say freed the other night at the national board of review in new york and five days away and hadn't decided on her dress forth golden globes a lot of dresses become available at the last minute because stylists hoard them. my clients might want these four or five different dresses and i'm going to hold them in the last day. and then they finally get released back into circulation in the final 24 hours before the globes and that's when other people get to try them on. so it's a very last-minute thing for many of these actresses. >> fascinating to get that behind the scenes.
2:35pm
what are the hottest parties tonight? >> the warner brothers party which ben affleck will be at and all his "argo" people, the beverly hilton. the weinstein company party at trader vick's, you will see all the "django unchained," leonardo dicaprio people and jamie foxx. and jennifer lawrence, "silver linings playbook" and bradley cooper and tina fey and amy poehler, the hosts tonight, having their own party at the soho house, those people lucky enough to be invited to that one. >> everything is so carefully managed. i'm wondering what is it we don't see on tv that you get to see? >> i have been to all these award shows multiple times. the thing that always fascinates me are the seat fillers. backstage there are just plenty of people all dressed up in tuxedos and ball gowns but they are absolute knobs. they are just there to fill a
2:36pm
seat if, say, someone like jessica chastain has to use the ladies room, she can't just get up and go, somebody has to sit in her seat and she has to be dress aid appropriately in case a camera goes over jessica's session. you don't want to see empty seats this is hollywood. you want to see butts in seats. one thing i have loved about the behind the scene scenes there. not only does the golden globes have a lot of boozen at table but backstage. the champagne is flowing, plenty of wine. you want to keep these people happy backstage. you want to keep them loose and so it is hardly a dry night. >> hardly at all. l bradley jacobs, senior editor with "us weekly" have a good time if they ever need a seat if i recall, please drop my name. thanks very much. no lone gunman in the jfk assassination. of course, we have heard that claim before but for the first
